For Gencon Indy this year, I've decided to make Galadriel's gown from The Hobbit (mirror gown coming later this year) and to remake my Arwen coronation gown. Why? Because I want to tone down that bright green a bit. Don't get me wrong; it's not a hideous green, just not what I thought I was getting.
When I first ordered the fabric, the shade looked perfect on screen, but when I got it, it was much more of a brighter green than I had expected. Therefore, I ordered a different shade of velvet from another company. I can't even believe that I broke my own rule, which I lecture about repeatedly in my cosplay book: never trust screen color! Always order a fabric sample first!
Well, my friends, I have now learned my lesson and promise not to do that ever again.
Now, who would like to buy my old Arwen gown? Hit me up on Facebook or by using my contact page if interested. :)
